Undated -- An EF 4 tornado tore through Cullman, Alabama in April 2011.
Lauren Meneau was riding in her car when the tornado formed right in front of her. The cell phone camera recorded the whole thing. While dark, you can hear her screams and the motion of her vehicle being thrown through the air. She said her vehicle hit and building and crashed to the ground.
Luckily, she survived, though her car did not. She now says she pays more attention to tornado warnings.
So what should you do if you're in a similar situation? The ideal action is to get out of the car and inside a reinforced building. If that's not an option, get out of the car and lie down in a low lying area.
